AGP119 features the music of Lejaren Hiller, who collaborated with John Cage on HPSCHD in the last installment. This installment includes a complete transcription of a Turnabout LP devoted to Hiller (TV-S 34536), and is filled out with the two Hiller tracks from an LP in the Avant Garde series on Deutsche Grammophon. The rest of that LP is included in AGP120.
The Turnabout LP is in very good condition but has the surface noise characteristic of most releases on that label. I was able to clean up most of it with some moderate de-clicking, but there is some truly atrocious pressing noise in the last several minutes of track 01 and in the last minute or two of track 03. You'll have to blame Turnabout for that. BTW, this LP appears to be seriously rare--$60 is being asked for the only copy I could find anywhere on the internet.
The other two tracks are two of four versions of a computer-generated composition. These tracks are better recorded and come from a better LP pressing. The installment includes a PDF file with scans of the liner notes from both LPs. To download AGP119 files, right-click on each of the following links and select SAVE LINK AS.
